    When I first encountered the problem described above I did try another outlet. Nothing happened. As per your suggestion I tried yet another outlet. In this case the red panel lights came on; I started the machine; a small amount of water started; then the lights went blank again. All of this took about one minute.

Check a different power outlet.
IF the washer does not start at all then it is probably a fault in the power supply unit.

    It can also be a problem with the inlet valve that locks up after pumping some water, in this case you fix it replacing it. Start testing the inlet valve and eventually replacing it.
    Here is How to Test the Inlet Valve

    If inlet valve is ok , usually is faulty control . replace panel

Nothing happens when the 'Start Button' is pressed on Electrolux Front load washer

Good Morning friend, thank you for your post!

From my understanding your Electrolux washer is not starting no matter what buttons are pushed. This could be a possible problem with your keypad or control panel. I noticed that you have already performed a reset and that was done when you unplugged your washer for 15 minutes. I would now recommend having a technician out to perform a diagnosis. In order to do so you would need to disassemble your washer and test each component to make sure they are working properly. The technician would have the appropriate tools needed to do this accurately. If you need some assistance locating a technician you should be able to visit the manufacturer's website for additional assistance. I hope this information is helpful for you. -Matt

My stackable GE Washer Model #GFAN1000L2WW start button is blinking. When I press it to start the load nothing happens. Does anyone have any idea why this is happening?

Hello Claude, let's see if we can figure this out. Have you ever put your machine into service mode before? It's not difficult and if you're comfortable trying, we can see what error codes come up.

Our washer's lights are blinking and nothing is happening? It won't start.

I don't have your specific solution, but I found a lot of manuals for this model washer here:

The one marked wiring diagram is actually a "Washer Tech Data Sheet" that has "Diagnostic tests" quick checks, an error code list, and more importantly, how to read the error codes and the tests to run after getting the error codes. Hope it helps.

Cabrio washer is giving an F 51 Code

The "F51" error code is common problem with the Cabrio. This is an RPS sensor error. The sensor is mounted along the motor windings under the washer and detects the rotation spin speed. The sensors on these units can go bad, causing the error code, and it has been a frequent problem. I would recommend you contact Whirlpool first (due to the unit only being a year old) and see if there is a recall or upgrade on this part. I believe there is. The repair would then be covered by the manufacturer. If I give you the steps to access and/or replace the sensor at this point, you may be voiding any existing warranty you may still have. Some components carry a longer warranty than your normal one year limited warranty from the manufacturer. Something you may consider.

If you have further questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you in some way.

Try buttons "dry" & "spin" together for a few seconds. This is the child lock display.

Or press "end of cycle" for over 5 seconds.

Or press "options & select" till the light goes off.

Works for other machines..............And please rate me if helped
